27th Jan 2012 - 5th Feb 2012

I’m very excited that our 7-piece Dixieland band “Platform Jazz” will be performing at the Rhumbelow theatre in Umbilo this coming weekend (last weekend of January) and the first weekend of February.

The 7 piece Dixieland band, 'Platform Jazz', plays authentic 1920's toe-tapping jazz. Included in their repertoire are such famous numbers such as the Fats Waller favorites 'I'm going sit right down and write myself a letter', 'Honeysuckle Rose' and traditional favorites including 'Sweet Georgia Brown', 'Chicago' and 'When the saints go marching in'. The line up includes trumpet, clarinet, sax, trombone, double bass, drums and piano/ Keyboard. They also play jazz standards and a few latin no.s including Volare, Quando quando, Girl from Ipenama and Sway. They have been going for 17 years, and have played for many functions including weddings, parties, opening of Hotel Isulu in Ballito, various functions and corporates at the ICC, concerts at the Playhouse, restaurant functions including BBB, Art Scene, NSA gallery, Beverly Hills Hotel , the jazz center at UND, and several events at Suncoast and Wild Coast casinos. They play regularly in Pietermaritzburg for Music Revival concerts and have performed at the Hilton College theatre and at a couple of previous Hilton Festivals.

Band members are Cathy 'Hotlips' Peacock on trumpet, Ian 'lightning fingers' Holloway on clarinet, Duncan Wooldridge on trombone, Jeff Judge on sax and vocals, Calli Thomson on keyboard, Andreas 'Bull fiddle' Kappen on double bass, Bashful Bruce Baker on drums and Jaziel Vaugh'hann - vocals..
